Finally at the party!

Hello all-
I'm late to the party but I am so glad to be here! Your versions of the Vignette in Stitches quilts are inspirational.

Our small quilt group just started the project. It looks a bit daunting but I'm sure we'll all survive.

I'm using very bold fabrics - primarily Kaffe Fassett. I do some sewing for my local quilt shop and she carries a ton of his fabric. I've never been drawn to his fabric before but decided to try and color outside my lines. When I gathered all the fabrics, I looked at it and said "it looks like fabric vomit". So......unofficially, it's my fabric vomit quilt! :)


  1. Welcome to the party! Lovely to see someone else joining in. Looking forward to watchng your progress.

  2. Love that orange fabric! That will be a very fun quilt with all those bright colors!

  3. Ha ha! I felt the same way about his fabrics but then saw the most beautiful Dear Jane Quilt made with his fabrics and rounded up a bunch of his fabric in 10" squares. His fabrics are certainly color saturated and I will look forward to seeing your quilt when it is finished. Watch that "vomit" turn into one of your all time favorites!!

  4. I too have not been fond of Kaffe's colors nor even the Sugar Flower etc. colors. But I have been forcing myself out of my primitive, thimbleberry dark fabrics and have found I love them. And my 30ish daughter is so crazy about the quilts I am making. Maybe I just had to "get with the new." I actually love the look of your blocks. :)

  5. Thanks gals!

    Ramona - I never would have thought to use it for a Dear Jane Quilt....I'd love to see a picture!

    I'm kicking around the idea of using the left over fabrics for my leader/ender project for 2012.....the original challenge on ( was to use the color cheddar as the background color and make bow tie blocks. Our group changed it to using an 'unusual' color for the background - I was thinking a slate or black with the Kaffe fabrics.
